Adding 2 more default routes with same weight to each dsl line won't work?
I have another problem which I realized just now.
I configured via rc.conf the ip and netmask below but when I do ifconfig the netmask appears as /24

calamardo# cat /etc/rc.conf | grep ifconfig
calamardo# ifconfig nfe0
nfe0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
       ether 00:1d:60:7e:38:7e
       inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
       media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
       status: active

This makes impossible to use and since they are on different networks and are unreachable (according to ifconfig).

Subject: Gateway load balance

Hi all

First time posting.

I am a long time Linux user (desktop and server) and started with FreeBSD a year ago. Thanks to the book Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Edition I learned a lot about the OS and how to configure different services I used in Linux (Slackware).

My post is regarding something I couldn't find information on how to implement it. Here's the situation:

I had a proxy server (Squid + Dansguardian) under Slackware on the LAN which, via 'ip route' I make it use 3 gateways connected each one to an ADSL line and balance the requests. Unfortunately my server crashed and I took the oportunity to install a new one under FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE. Squid and Dansguardian are working fine. My problem is that I don't know how to make the server use the other 2 gateways I have left and balance the requests on all ADSL lines.                      proxy 1st gateway (1 NIC to LAN - 2 NIC to ADSL modem)                 2nd gateway                      3rd gateway

I found it could be done with PF (also read most of The Book of PF) but I am quite lost about how to do it.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
